with newark mayor cory booker, anti-tax activist and nra board member grover norquist, peggy noonan of "the wall street journal" and katrina vanden heuvel from "the nation." >>> hello, again. the president and congress are off for christmas fleeing a capitol filled with political rancor and political dysfunction. fiscal cliff talks have completely collapsed. questions about the president's new national security team has forced him to announce the appointments piecemeal and the nra's first response to the tragedy in newtown provoked a fierce debate. we'll cover that starting with the nra's choice to lead a national effort to protect schools, former congressman, asa hutchinson. good morning, mr. hutchinson. thanks for joining us this morning. >> hi. >> you emphasized at the press conference friday you will be independent. but as you begin your effort, this national school shield, initiative, i wonder if you agree with the analysis of the problem laid out by wayne lapierre who says americans have to face this truth. take a look. >> politicians pass laws for gun-free school zones, and in doing
helpful or a pointless exercise? cory booker, the hero mayor of newark, the guy who runs into a burning building to save lives, invites superstorm sandy victims into his home and rushes to aid a pedestrian hit by a car. heroism so out of the norm, it's been lampooned by booker himself and new jersey governor chris christie. >> gov, sit tight. i got this. >> booker. >> governor, stand back! i got this. i got this. >> booker! >> now booker says he will honor a challenge he made to one of his million plus twitter followers to live on food stamps for a week to see how the other half lives. although it's fair to ask, as mayor of newark, doesn't he already know? the s.n.a.p. challenge, as booker calls it, means eating on just $4.32 a day. he he says he's doing to, quote, raise awareness and understanding of food insecurity, reduce the stigma of s.n.a.p. participation, and amplify compassion for individuals and communities in need of assistance. he was told by a constituent that nutrition is not a responsibility of the government. he seems to be itching to prove her wrong. he could run against
of different perspectives tonight on guns in america. i want to bring in newark mayor, corey booker. and christiane amanpour. and psychologist dr. deepak chopra and tom ridge. from washington and former homeland security secretary. corey booker, let me start with you. it is heart-breaking. it's agonizing. you can't say anything to make it better. what i find fascinating about him is his incredible dignity. the way he was prepared to offer comfort and sympathy to the family of the man who had shot his child and he went on to talk about gun control and said that he didn't want wide-ranging gun control to come as a result of this, but he didn't understand why this shooter's mother would ever want to have the kind of assault weapon that was used in her home to defend herself. he raised a number of issues about that which we'll see more of tomorrow. but what do you say to other families in america that can't send them to school now, to movie theaters? there is almost nowhere left now that's sacred for americans to be safe because of gun violence. what is the answer? >> well, first of all

and newark. that's on the east coast because that storm that swept through the midwest and is on the east coast is causing problems there. we'll jump to the west coast and the airport, there are ground delays there, as well. that's going to possibly ripple through the other airports as the planes that are on the ground there cannot get to destinations on time. it will create delays at airports that are supposed to take passengers to their destination. we'll starting to see problems in midwest wednesday, thursday, and friday now on the east coast. >> i hope you get to 20, i know you're at 19. 20 will fall balmy. >> reporter: nice and generous. thank you. >> listen, stay warm. thank you very much. >> reporter: thanks. >>> let's check in with alexandra steele in the cnn weather center. you said it's bad in parts. where is the brunt of this storm today, and how much snow can some of these areas expect? >> the brunt of the big blizzard that moved through that he was talking about is now in the northeast in the form of lake effect or lake enhanced snow for the most part. you know, victor showed
political note. a possible battle royale next year in new jersey. newark mayor cory booker says he's going to decide whether to challenge republican governor chris christie, who is enjoying some sky high approval ratings. booker calls chris christie vulnerable on women's issues and the environment. chris christie is riding a wave of popularity because of how he responded to hurricane sandy. but according to a poll, in a matchup with booker, chris christie prevailed 53% to 35%. >> he's eyeing a more probable run for the u.s. senate in 2014. so clearly, we'll see how it plays out. mayor booker is just coming off of his food stamp challenge where he lived off of $31 a week in food. so he made a lot of headlines. >> the two of them have a pretty good working relationship. they've praised one another and were featured in a tongue and cheek video together, collaborating back in may. >> not a dull time in jersey politics. my home state. here's your wednesday forecast, everybody. heavy rain and gusty winds from miami to orlando. showers to the north, spreading into the carolinas. light snow in nor
. here is a business flooded out at the auto pier in newark. the shore, newark, all types of communities affected. i wanted to walk through these photos to give my colleagues and fellow americans the sense of the damage we have seen throughout the state. but what i have shown you still does not do justice to the full impact of the storm or the devastation people went through. every part of new jersey was affected by the storm and we need your help to recover. now, unfortunately, there are those voices who are saying the cost to help families rebuild and recover is too much, and that it should be reduced. that in this emergency, unlike many other similar emergencies in the past, we should do something smaller and wait to do the rest later. those who make such arguments could not be respectfully more wrong. you can't rebuild half of a path station, a little now and a little sometime more in the future. you can't permanently repair half of the mantoloking bridge. half a bridge is not a bridge at all. you can't hire a contractor to rebuild a house or restore half of a community. you need the
22nd. newark mayor cory booker is starting his food stamp challenge tomorrow and over the weekend he went out and bought $29.78 worth of food for the week. that is a little bit less than what the average new jersey recipient got from the federal supplemental nutritionist assistance program or snap in 2011. other public official have taken the challenge. i remember reporting it on it years ago. several members of congress have done it. also the mayors of las vegas and phoenix and former utah governor jon huntsman. booker came to the challenge on twitter with a follower who was is asking why it is kids need nutrition in school if they have access to food stamps. that twitter follower is supposed to be taking the challenge alongside booker as well. >> alarming news out of syria. the ap reporting syria has been moving around chemical components in the last week. secretary of state clinton is underscoring president obama's warning that if the syrian government uses chemical weapons, the u.s. will take acti
violence in america. in my hometown of newark, new jersey, 348 shootings and 9 deaths occurred last -- 93 deaths occurred last year as a result of gun violence. unfortunately it's too late to save these victims. but it's not too late to prevent the next attack. the ban on certain types of guns, specifically assault weapons, and carnage clips, and piercing armor bullets undoubtedly would help. with stricter gun laws to save lives. now is the time for action. i yield back. the speaker pro tempore: the gentleman yields back. for what purpose does the gentlelady seek recognition? >> i ask unanimous consent to address the house for one minute, revise and extend my remarks. the speaker pro tempore: the gentlelady from colorado is recognized. ms. degette: thank you, mr. speaker. mr. speaker, last friday 20 beautiful children and their loving teachers were shot by a deranged man with an assault rifle that had a high-capacity magazine. the time has come for us to have a national conversation about this. about the mental health, about the community issues, about school safety and about these types

americans are watching. >> americans care about politics. >> newark mayor cory booker started his week-long food stamp challenge. he's living on the groceries he can buy $30 a week or less, five bucks a day. the amount he says new jersey residents receive they qualify for federal assistance. here's how day one went in his words. >> seems a little more difficult because i didn't plan in my travel schedule got a little messed up so i found myself not having access to food and the food i bought. i went through a long period of the day actually not eating anything. so i think that it's very clear that if you are on a very limited budget, you have to put a lot more thought into what you're going to eat, where you're going to find food, and especially if you're on a program like snap, what places will accept my snap dollars. >> here's the photo he tweeted of 17 cans of beans, 7 yams, two bags of frozen vegetables, two apples that will be his food for the week. i would like to add a point here. a lot of times people try to do this to prove a point to live on snap whichs is supplemental nutrit
worried for many reasons, but one that really stood out for me was a dad from newark, delaware, whose own child is struggling with mental illness and who is working hard to try and find the resources to ensure appropriate care so that someday he isn't watching with horror on the television as the tragic actions of his child unfold. we think of the story shared online of the mother in idaho terrified that her own son has the capacity to kill some day. and yet, without the ability to give him the intensive medical care, treatment and intervention she believes he needs. across this country, mental health care is a growing challenge for us, between 2009 and 2011, states cut more than $2 billion from community mental health services. two-thirds of states have significantly slashed funding in these difficult economic times leaving parents seeking help for their mentally ill children often with nowhere to turn. mr. president, we must do better for all these parents, the parents who lost their children at sandy hook elementary, the parents who lost their children who were teachers and faculty, th
